Blues Run the Game
Jackson C. Frank
Copyright 1965

Catch a boat to England baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues - are all the same

Send out for whisky baby
Send out for gin
Me and room service honey,
Me and room service babe
Me and room service
Well we're living - a life of sin

When I'm not drinking baby
You are on my mind
When I'm not sleeping honey
When I ain't sleeping babe
When I ain't sleeping
Well you know - you'll find me crying

Try another city baby
Another town
Wherever I have gone,
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues - come following down

Living is a gamble baby
Loving's much the same
Wherever I have played
Wherever I throw them dice
Wherever I have played
The blues - have run the game

Maybe tomorrow honey
Someplace down the line
I'll wake up older
So much older mama
I'll wake up older
And I'll just - stop all my trying

Catch a boat to England baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues - are all the same
